Replacement harnesses. Headlight harness, main harness, injector harness, & tail light harness complete with bonus tail light. The ignition switch, side stand switch, & handlebar controls were spared.

As mentioned all the battery / ground / starter cables were replaced also but not pictured.

Replaced the spark plugs since I had once in a lifetime access...once they were out had the same impression as when I did the <other bike>...is this really necessary?

They look black in the pics but in person they look good, should be running just fine.

I would remove and blank off the AIS system, remove and dismantle/clean out the starter motor then spray the rusty body of it. Great work done.

Got the cooling system & all the wires that reside under the left & right main fairings reinstalled & sorted. Can't fill the cooling system yet since there is a loop that runs thru the throttle bodies.:rolleyes: Those left & right wiring bunches & hoses snaked around each other & the surrounding frame to radiator cowling will test you. The headlight harness & handlebar controls feed in thru the steering head & tie in to the remaining connectors under the tank then the AIS hoses plop on top last. Had enough wiring & cable routing for now--moving on to suspension for a change of pace.

After letting the fork drain for a few weeks (not intentional) I filled each leg with a few ounces of fresh fluid, cycled them for a few minutes, drained them again, then filled them up for good. One upper tube had a single rust pit spec on it in the travel portion, so I dressed it down with emery cloth.

The gauge buttons are supposed to look like this:

The mice chewed mine so they look like this:

In addition to no longer being weather tight the rubber caps now no longer activate the switches below that look like this (& seem to function fine):

I REALLY do not want to buy a used cluster for around $60 just to pry out the rubber buttons. Anyone know a source to get replacement buttons?

Dismounted the rotors & scrubbed them with water & a Scotch-Brite. Same with the pads (all interstate use, barley used). Cleaned the calipers, pad springs, & wheels with wheel cleaner. Tires only after I hear it run.

Just my go to wheel cleaner. It does an amazing job on brake dust. I prefer to remove the pads then spray down the calipers, let them soak a couple minutes, hit with a toothbrush (If needed), then rinse off.

Super restoration performance. We gotta ensure that these bikes are still around for the next generations to enjoy and you’re really doing your part with an abundance of valor (y)

I can second this as I AM that next generation and I am currently (well not at this freezing moment) enjoying the heck out of my 2003.

Yeap, do enjoy the heck out of what you’ve got and lose any guilt you may harbor for piling up the miles. Otherwise it’s just like abstaining and keeping your girlfriend tight for the next guy.
